If you don't like Chinese made phones, there's also a Korean brand.

Hackers are going to be very disappointed. I wouldn't loan $5 to my grandmother, much less give personal info.

OT:
Malicious Windows malware 'Shamoon' deletes computer contents, prevents reboot

If your Windows-based computer suddenly won't boot up, it could be the evil doing of malicious malware that deletes the contents of your computer -- farewell, documents, pictures and videos -- and then prevents reboot.

Just spotted in the wild, it's being called either Disttrack (McAfee's name) or the Shamoon attacks (Symantec's), and researchers say it's notable because it's been a long while since they've noticed malware going to such lengths to truly make someone's life miserable in this way by deleting personal files.

Get Kaspersky and you might not see this malware issue.

Well unless you've been ignoring the 3 golden rules since the early 1990's "backup,backup,backup" there should be no issues. Also any decent anti-virus will catch it now so the onus is on the user to ensure a/v is installed and updated (that goes for all makes and OS'es).

this puppy is actually a trojan.. thats trying to cover its tracks Dubbed "Shamoon" by most antivirus companies, the
malware has been used in targeted attacks aimed at specific individuals or
firms, including at least one in the energy sector.
According to Israeli security company Seculert,
Shamoon relies on a one-two punch, first taking control of a system connected to
the Internet before spreading to other PCs on an organization's network.
The second stage -- which kicks off after the
malware has done its dirty work -- overwrites files and the Master Boot Record
(MBR) of the machine. The latter makes the PC unbootable.

None of my family/friends would ask for any of that information. One would have to be stupid.

Another of many reasons Apple and it's products have become the laughing stock of the tech industry and our society. It won't be long before we will look back and remember how many people thought the earth was flat...I mean thought Apple products were good.

You know PC stands for Piece of Chit don't you?
08:02 PM on 08/18/2012
Actually PC stands for more than 90% of computers around the world. From Graphics to Video Editing to programming they are the most versatile, powerful, and commonly used computer platform on earth. They may be a few m0r0ns in America that think Macs are a better computer but since that fairy tale has been proven wrong time and time again, it's been a fading tale. Owning a PC is being connected to the most popular platform the planet has ever seen and is second to none.

I thought it was short for "People's Republic of China"

I agree. Its very dangerous when the masses use and depend upon one product. Once the hackers and evil doers overcome its security everyone is screwed and their lives will be fubard.

I'm glad I'm aware of this. People are so sneaky and desperate these days. I can't believe the number of crimes being committed. Does anybody care?
10:25 PM on 08/18/2012
No why should anyone care when we are too busy texting each other.
01:08 AM on 08/19/2012
No time to care, texting trumps thinking. Just ask the girl who rear ended my new truck a couple of months ago. Poor thing, texting in rush hoiur. College girl. She was so stupid to think that after the cop got our insurance info, she could avoid reporting the accident to her insurance co and they wouldnt know. So, I sent all the reports to her ins co for her. I got my truck fixed...and then I sued her.

Why don't these _hackers make themselves useful, and reveal which of our politicians have money hidden in the Caymans?

"SMS Spoofing"

This is bound to be happening sooner or later. Our IT companies will spend their money on R n D, but NOT on security for their products. It's how American Corporations roll. And they wonder how the Asian countries compete with us so well. Hmmn...
